Woman Receives $284 Billion Electric Bill, Blames Christmas Lights

Festive indulgences turned into a shocking experience for a Pennsylvanian woman when she checked her electricity bill and found out that she owed more than $284bn (£212bn) to her electricity provider for the month of December. "I can't recall ever seeing a bill for billions of dollars", Durbin said.

The company told her that she had until November 2018 to pay that amount, which, while a lot less than the initial billions, is still a bit larger than usual. Mary Horomanski of Erie, Pennsylvania, logged in to her online utility account to discover a balance of $284,460,000,000.

"My eyes just about popped out of my head", said the 58-year old Penelec customer to Go Erie on Christmas day.

Horomanski first thought her holiday decorations were responsible for all the extra zeroes.

The play shocked Benjamin, who thought he had given his team a big momentum boost heading into half time. He now serves as the team's primary deep threat, and that's exactly what he was against the Patriots.

Penelec spokesman Mark Durbin said somehow the decimal point was in the wrong spot. Obviously, that total was still a bit outside what the Horomanski family was accustomed to paying, so she grabbed her phone and tried to get to the bottom of it all.

'We appreciate the customer's willingness to reach out to us about the mistake'. As for Mary Horomanski, she reportedly told her son that after seeing the bill she'd prefer a heart monitor for Christmas.

In another case a Florida man opened up a bill for $12,000 from his electric company.
